The Great Rift Vally
Governors' Aviation operates a daily flight to Loldia House, in the Great Rift Valley, from Nairobi Wilson Airport on request. This flight then goes on to the Masai Mara.
Breathtaking natural scenery combines with some of Africa’s most memorable wildlife. The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya. A huge geological fault-line, the Great Rift Valley stretches round one-sixth of the Earth’s circumference.
Along its lengths are volcanoes, most now dormant. One of the rarest animals found here is the rhino. Living alongside are millions of flamingos, the world’s greatest concentration around Lake Nakuru.
Close to the main attractions is Loldia House an old farmhouse converted and run by Governors’ Camp Collection. Loldia House is an original, settler-style home built on the shores of Lake Naivasha in 1939, where guests can experience the Kenya of old, with its gentle pace of life, drive, walk or horseback ride among the herds of plains game which live alongside farm animals.
There are beautiful views of the dormant volcano, Mount Longonot. Wild animals roam free on the farm and in the evenings hippo munch quietly by the waterside.
Loldia House is only a two hour drive from Nairobi and within easy reach of Nairobi’s International Airport. It is a perfect place from which to begin your exciting safari holiday around Kenya. It is also conveniently located for day trips to the famous Lake Nakuru National Park. There are now also daily flights on Governors' Aviation direct from Loldia House to the Masai Mara.
